OSI Systems Inc. says it has sold an x-ray scanner for cargo trains to an Eastern European customer.
The high-tech contractor said Thursday that the unnamed buyer will pay $5 million for a new Eagle Rail Inspection Scanner and related construction.
The Eagle system x-rays cargo and vehicles to help keep dangerous cargo out of transportation systems. More than 150 such scanners are used by the U.S. government, United Kingdom customs agency, militaries and others to look inside rail freight cars.
Hawthorne-based OSI develops and sells technology for the homeland security, healthcare, defense and aerospace industries.
